Pertwood Down Long Barrow

Long Barrow


Grinsell (quoted in Dyer's Southern England guide) says that this long barrow is unusual in that it has a wide 5m berm between the mound and the 'well preserved' side ditches. It's thought to be unexcavated. The map shows it lying parallel to the slope on its Wiltshire chalk downland, so I guess it presents the largest and most prominent view when seen from the valley below. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
